“In my dream this morning, God told me I am on spiritual bed rest.” That’s what one of my clients told me last week. Then, two days ago, another actually called me from her bed. For a while now, many of us have been guided to be still. Be still and listen deeply. Be still and heal. And in my own case, be still and allow what wants to come in. But the concept of spiritual bed rest really brought this dynamic into sharper focus for me.
“You know how some women are put on bed rest when they are pregnant? They are about to give birth to something important, and the rest will enable it to come out just right,” the first client explained. And while the second was nursing an ailing back, her Akashic Records also counseled a deep, deep quiet.
Critical to Creating
In our go-go, do-do western world, this idea that stillness is critical to creating something new and important is often foreign. Even in the coaching world, where cleaning out drawers and closets frequently is suggested to clients wanting to manifest something new, those empty spaces are created through action.
Stillness, on the other hand, is about being – being and allowing. Archetypally, it’s much more feminine.
The doing phase does appear, but later in the process. Rather than precipitating the flow, the doing is in partnership with it.
Allowing the Divine to Work Through Us
So, if human action does not precipitate the flow, what does? Well, our higher selves do – our individuated aspects of the Divine.
When we are still, we can allow the Divine to work through us and with us.
And when we engage with Divine flow, there is no forcing. Therefore, the actions guided by the Divine don’t create an equal and opposite reaction.
While others might react in a way that appears negative, in actuality, their words and behaviors are the result of what Divine energy has brought to the surface to be healed. If we allow that initial reaction, chances are it can simply subside. If we resist or judge it, however, we often risk fixing it in place, and impeding the flow.
More Efficient and Effective
So, while it appears that being still “takes too long,” over time it actually is more efficient and effective. In actuality, stillness precipitates fewer negative reactions and less suffering. Therefore, solutions to challenges once deemed insurmountable can simply appear and unfold.
Can you sense your higher guidance calling you to stillness? For some of us, our daily prayer or meditation time is all that’s needed.
But, if those regular 20 – 30 minute doses of stillness are not doing the trick, do not despair. Ask your guidance if you are on bed rest, but do not know it – yet.
The feeling that we’re treading water, that our spiritual aspirations have been “on hold,” this is a popular symptom of the need for a much deeper stillness. So is a deeper questioning of our purpose and role in life.
Ask your higher wisdom if it is time to be still and allow the Divine.
